acupuncture

Rebecca uses acupuncture mostly to treat meridian conditions of the muscles, sinews, and joints- see our page all about pain – and has a different treatment approach for internal conditions.

For meridian conditions, Rebecca specializes in orthopedic acupuncture treatment combined with mirror technique, which pairs well with Chinese orthopedic bodywork/tui na and she often uses them in tandem. 

She also employs microsystem acupuncture, including auricular and Yamamoto scalp acupuncture but some Korean hand acupuncture as well.
